Full Marathon Here I Come.... OMG!!

Thursday, May 14, 2009

OMG... I must be crazy!! I went online to register for my second 1/2 Marathon in Disney World in January and it was all full. I panicked how can this be its 8 months away. How can all these people already registered?? So not fair.. then my mind starting talking to me and I swear the man upstairs does things in the wildest ways. I just peeked at the FULL MARATHON and would you know it was only 50% full. I though could I do this, am I strong enough, will I make the whole marathon?? Then I saw the Biggest Loser 2 weeks ago and all 4 contestants did a full marathon. I CAN DO THIS I thought to myself. I called daddy of course and he says just do it.. You have accomplished everything but a full whats holding you back?? He even paid for it as an early birthday gift. Well its official I hit the confirm button on the screen and would you know Kimmie is running a FULL MARATHON Sunday January 10th 2010 at 5:50am. OMG I have my work cut out for me. I better tie up those shoes and hit the pavement... cause here I come!!!

All the things Ive accomplished in a little over a year:
130 pounds LOST!!
10...5KS
2..10Ks
Triathlon
1/2 Marathon....

One thing left My Full Marathon.. HERE I COME MICKEY MOUSE!! SO EXCITED!!! THIS ONE IS FOR YOU DADDY!!!

    AWESOME!! Congrats on signing up. I've heard that's a VERY first-timer friendly course with very little in the way of hills, so you can just focus on the distance. You've got PLENTY of time to train and I think you're going to have a blast!!!

    KIMMIE!!! You are amazing! I'm SO INCREDIBLY EXCITED FOR YOU! This is fantastic. You will do so well, I just know it. And like you said, it's 8 months away, so you have plenty of time to train. I'm all giddy just thinking about it. The very first race I ever did was a full marathon! Of course I only walked since I'm not a runner yet, but it was still quite an amazing feat. I've always wanted to do the Disney marathon or half marathon. They have the BEST medals. You are such an incredible inspiration to me. Racing is one of the things I like to imagine myself doing a lot. It's one of my goals and one of the things that keeps me going. So far I've walked a full and a half marathon, and I've got my first 5K at the end of the month. (I'm going backwards, apparently!) I can't wait to hear your report after you run your full marathon! You'll have to make a vacation out of it and treat yourself to a few days at the parks to play after you're done. You'll have certainly earned it. YOU GO GIRL!!!

    Awesome, good for you!

    I'm still comtemplating my first full. I just finished my first half two weeks ago, but the thought of the full is on my mind. There is one in November that would be "the one" if I decide to do it! Maybe I should just suck it up and register, then I wouldn't think about it too much!

    Good luck w/ your training, and congrats on everything that you've accomplished so far! emoticon

    Just going through the recent blogs and came across yours. Awesome job on everything that you have accomplished! My DD is signed up for the 1/2 Marathon in January (sorry, but it is through her High school) and I am sooo jealous! How dare she go to sunny Florida without me! Good luck on the FULL!! WOW!! emoticon
